The primary objective of this study was to document the current status and establish baseline information on amphibian communities.
Once this was done, the work went a step further and documented the changes in assemblage in accordance to stages of human modified forest landscapes.
Habitat loss & degradation
The third step was to use this information as raw material for a mathematical model which then predicted the changes that occured in amphibian communities in larger areas due to global climate change.
The last objective was to build a sense of environmental stewardship among the local youth by directly involving them in scientific research and monitoring.
